Running is one of the most practiced sports worldwide, offering numerous health benefits, but also carrying a risk of injury, mainly at the knee and ankle joints. The origin of running injuries is not fully understood. With predictive neuromusculoskeletal simulations, more insight could be gained into the biomechanical mechanisms that may lead...

The ‘Timed Up and Go’ test (TUG) is a widely used clinical tool for assessing gait and balance, relying primarily on timing as a measure. However, there are more observable biomechanical compensation strategies within TUG that are indicative of underlying neuromuscular issues and movement priorities. In individuals with unilateral knee...

Developing a new knee prosthesis requires thorough testing. Forward dynamics simulation can be valuable in the development process. It can reduce the need for intermediate prototypes and tests. Currently, there are 3D simulations of healthy walking and kinematic models of common prosthesis like the 3R60. However, they have not yet been combined....

Over the past decades, the technological improvements in computing power, software and projection systems enabled driving simulators to become a cost-effective tool to perform research activities and train novel drivers. Today, driving simulators are widely used for studying the interaction of driver and vehicle system, developing new vehicles...

To objectively diagnose the severity of spasticity, it is important to measure the muscle activity accurately. Filtered EMG has an offset above zero which is part noise and part background activity. The goal of this study is to separate these two parts, using a non-linear neuromuscular ankle model. The model uses positional and EMG data as...

<i>Introduction.</i> Increased joint resistance to imposed movement (“muscle hypertonia”) is a common finding in patients with an upper motor neuron syndrome, following stroke. Contributors to muscle hypertonia are of neural (increased reflex activity) and non-neural (altered visco-elastic properties) nature. Extracorporeal shock wave therapy ...

It is well established that the central nervous system (CNS) stabilizes the head using reflexive feedback and cocontraction. The major reflexive pathways in the neck are through muscle spindles generating the cervicocollic reflex (CCR) and through the vestibular organ generating the vestibulocollic reflex (VCR). The CNS modulates the...

Background Spastic paresis in cerebral palsy (CP) is characterized by increased joint stiffness that may be of neural origin, i.e. improper muscle activation caused by e.g. hyperreflexia or non-neural origin, i.e. altered tissue viscoelastic properties (clinically: “spasticity” vs. “contracture”). Differentiation between these components is hard...
